Evelyn's dream art museum. One day. Eight hours. Square footage equal to 30 football fields. 17 different collections. Where to start, where to start? The Great Hall. Before coming to New York City, Evelyn had read both a fiction and nonfiction book about the Met. These books helped her to plan her one-day visit.
Then Evelyn used kid-friendly pastels to transfer her pictures and color in museum-provided stencils onto muslin. A top-notch souvenir.
At the end of the day we were thoroughly, yet happily, exhausted. The art we saw spanned over 4,000 years and all of the continents. There were several collections we didn't get to see, so Evelyn has already started making a list for her next visit to the Met.
